Visit Micro-Epsilon's stand at MTEC for a chance to
win the latest in hand held temperature measurement
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon is offering
visitors to its stand (NEC, Hall 11, stand 40) at this year's
'MTEC: sensors, measurement and instrumentation'
exhibition (15-16 February 2006) a chance to win its latest
hand-held, infra-red temperature measurement device,
One device will be given away free on each day of the show, complete
with tripod mounting, padded soft pouch, carrying case and software.
he unit normally sells for £475.00. All you have to do for a chance to
win the device is visit Micro-Epsilon's stand and hand your business
card/contact details to one of the staff. The lucky winner will be picked
at random from a hat at the end of each day of the show.
The Optris® LaserSight enables engineers to measure the surface
temperature of objects down to 1mm in size. The unit is accurate to
±0.75% and so provides plant engineers, maintenance technicians
and field/service engineers with an attractive lower cost alternative
to using thermal cameras. The device is ideally suited to preventive
maintenance applications, quality management, research and
development and electronic design.
The optical resolution of the device is 75:1 and so users can measure
smaller targets that are further away. This high level of resolution is
achieved by a world-wide patented laser sighting which utilises
special, narrow beam aiming. The new laser crosshairs sighting
system supports precise temperature measurements at any distance.
The measuring range of the device is from -35°C up to 900°C. The
unit also benefits from a slimline, ergonomic design and is no larger
or heavier than a standard TV remote control device, and so fits
neatly into an engineer's pocket.
A range of other sensors and measurement systems from Micro-Epsilon
will also be on show at Mtec this year, including: eddy current sensors;
optical and laser sensors; capacitive; linear inductive; wire sensors;
2D/3D profile scanners; laser micrometers; and infra-red cameras.
Additionally, in-line temperature measurement device, the Optris® CT
temperature sensor, is ideal for use in automation, mechanical systems,
control engineering, plant construction environments and can measure
temperatures from -40°C up to 900°C, with a temperature resolution
of 0.1°C within 160 milliseconds. The unit has an optical resolution
of 2:1, 15:1 and 20:1 (as standard). The standard unit is able to withstand
ambient temperatures of up to 180°C without cooling.
Other new products on show at Mtec will include Micro-Epsilon's
unique optoelectronic displacement measurement sensor, the
optoNCDT 1700, which is self-contained and has no external
electronics. With no separate controller to mount, machine builders
and systems integrators can reduce the costs associated with
wiring the sensors and free up space in their control cabinets.
he sensor has an integral controller that automatically compensates
in real time for difficult-to-measure surfaces such as shiny metal,
gloss paint finishes and transparent surfaces, enabling industrial
automation and OEMs to more accurately measure and monitor
a variety of object parameters, including thickness, roundness,
position, deflection, tilt, displacement and vibration. The sensor
can also be used for on- and off-line quality inspection tasks, dynamic
part profiling and part recognition.
Micro-Epsilon is able to customise sensor systems in high volumes
at low cost to meet and exceed OEM requirements. For example,
the company has developed customised sensor coils for Moog
hydraulic valves using its high volume manufacturing division based
in the Czech Republic (Micro Sensor). This facility has the capacity
to manufacture up to one million sensors per year, using fully
automated winding, production and assembly techniques. According
to Chris Jones, Managing Director at Micro-Epsilon UK: "This
enables a product, with a volume of 20,000 pieces per year, to be
sold for less than 15 euros, which is very low cost for this level of
accuracy and precision."
